Brownbag: der.hans - Online Privacy and Security
@ Gangplank Chandler

Companies and web sites are compromised all the time. Using the same password on multiple sites means that a breakin on one site can be used to compromise your account on the other sites that use the same password.

Avoid that domino effect by using simple, effective techniques to make sure information from one web site can’t be used to authenticate your account on another site.

Learn simple techniques to secure your accounts, manage your credentials and verify web site security.

About the speaker: der.hans is the founder of the Free Software Stammtisch, chairman for the Phoenix Linux Users Group (PLUG) and repeat speaker for the Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE). He’s a DBA at Limelight Networks and an adjunct instructor at Mesa Community College.
